Demolition Permit Approvals Showing Steady Increase in New York City

     Demolition Permit Approvals Showing Steady Increase in New York City

Demolition permit approvals are on the rise in New York City, showing a steady uptick during the first four months of 2014 compared to the same period last year. 

Approved demolition permits rose 24.8 percent, from 602 in the first third of 2013 to 751 approved earlier this year.  Construction approvals increased as well, up 38.2 percent from 500 to 691. Demolition and construction permit increases have been attributed largely to continuing recovery from both the recession and Superstorm Sandy, as well as to better efficiency in the New York City Department of Buildings. 

Staten Island saw the largest increase in approved demolition projects through April, with the DOB issuing 195 permits, versus 112 demolition approvals in 2013. Demolition approvals rose by 38 percent in Manhattan over last year, and Queens received the most demolition permits, with contractors getting approval on 235 projects.
